The last time the Warren County High School football team won its final game of the season, current members of the Pioneers weren’t even in diapers. They hadn’t been born.The Pioneers go into tonight’s season finale against the Soddy Daisy Trojans hoping to snap a streak of losing the final game of the season, something that dates back to 1990.Warren County (2-7) hasn’t won its last game of the season in 22 years, when coach Ray Barnes led the Pioneers to four straight victories and a Nurseryman’s Bowl win over Cumberland County to finish the year.Coach Tommy Johnson hopes the streak ends tonight at 7 p.m. when the Pioneers step on the field against Soddy Daisy. Though extending the season is impossible at this point, coach Johnson still thinks there is plenty to play for tonight.“We want to go into the offseason on a positive note,” said Johnson.
